Tickets go on sale this Friday for this year's Flavours of Fall happening this Thanksgiving weekend.

"This is our 6th annual event happening on Saturday, October 7th, over at Weyburn Agricultural Society's Exhibition Hall," said Lisa Vick with the Weyburn Agricultural Society.

Flavours of Fall is a 19+ food and beverage expo for those who want to try out samples from various local vendors.

"We've got local beverage companies and restaurants that will be set up offering samples of what they have to offer. We've got usually on average about 25 to 30 vendors and they bring a wide assortment of things for you to try," Vick noted.

"So the nice thing about that is if you've been thinking about going to a certain restaurant and you're like, 'oh, I'm not too sure' or it's new, like we have some new places in town that will be participating this year, they will have some things that you can just stop in spend a couple of tokens on and try what they're offering at the restaurant."

Tickets go on sale Friday at Pharmasave at an advance rate of $20, or attendees can also get them for $25 at the door. 

Entertainment this year will feature Dan Cugnet, followed by a cover group called Tequila Mockingbird.

"They are going to be doing some covers and getting you up and dancing and having some fun towards the end of the night."

She said the entertainment and the samples begin right at 8:00 p.m., starting right away, and there will be an early bird door prize draw for a fully stocked beverage centre, for those who arrive before 9:00 p.m.

For those who need a safe ride home, Vick said, "Barber Motors has always been a supporter of ours, and they will have their vans running for us at the end of the night to get everyone home safely."

A full list of vendors will be posted to their social media pages.

"Just know that you're supporting a great cause," Vick added. "The Weyburn Agricultural Society needs this fundraiser to maintain the grounds and the buildings that offer great opportunities and spaces for our community too."
